  • U.S. steelmakers again demand tariffs on imports [View news story]
    Some are making other moves to lower costs and increase profitability.

    This ore from Canada will displace Ore that MT is buying from others. Its very high grade and can be charged into a blast furnace without any further processing (does not have to be pelletized or cintered)

  • U.S. steelmakers again demand tariffs on imports [View news story]
    US Steel = that short term thinking that is sinking American industry. Stelco's LEW works was always a money maker until US Steel took it over while Hilton works was the money looser in bad markets. Under US Steel, both plants were money loosing situations from day 1. This had nothing to do with free trade and everything to do with the way the plants were run.

    You are again incorrect and post what amounts to a simpleton argument- the US auto industry was destroyed by many factors coming together - among them - poor quality, poor reliability, short term thinking that focused on short term profits over everything else, poor overpriced service from dealerships, an attitude where they could build anything and charge what they wanted and the consumer would pay and yes the unions with their inward looking focus were part of the problem. - just to name a few and further more nothing seems to have changed with the North American 3 - they have learned very little from their pain. As for the so called imports - many are built here with North American labor.

    Dumping is not free trade and is not positive for any economy in any way. Fair trade with rules that are followed is a different story and is positive for most economies.

  • Chesapeake Is Less Attractive Than Encana [View article]
    Last quarter, the market punished ECA for what I call a "delayed production quarter". Their work in the Permian was front end loaded with a lot of the increased production coming in the 3rd and 4rth quarters. If this holds true, ECA should be producing some very positive results in the up coming quarters. The market was in no mode for negative surprises and although a minor one, ECA shares paid the price for it.

    JMO - Long ECA

  • Natural Gas - Mispriced, Overlooked, And Poised To Rally [View article]
    The industry has been hurt big time by the self inflicted damage of drilling their brains out and so I suspect that their may be some self restraint this time around. For one thing, the banks are not exactly lining up to finance gas or oil drilling and shareholders after also taking a beating are looking for conservative management. We have LNG plants starting up at the end of this year with more to follow. Yes their is a lot of nat gas in the ground but at these prices, I would be leaning towards seeing increases rather than decreases.

  • Oil sands pipeline projects placed in doubt following recent Nexen spill [View news story]
    I am not sure it matters to you but the only reason that that train was carrying oil was due to the lack of way safer pipeline capacity to move that oil.

    The provinces seem to have way more say on the issue that the Feds and even Alberta's Notly will support it when push comes to shove and their is no question as to Saskatchewan support. The bigger issue is American presidential support and we all know that that will not come till Obama is gone.

    IMO - I believe that XL not being approved has been priced into TRP for a while. Obama has been delaying any decision for over 6 years and any approval if it comes will come after Obama is out. The NDP impact on Keystone may not be as big as one would think as it travels through Alberta and THE USA and does not need Canadian federal approval.

  • Encana Continues To Face Troubles [View article]
    I expect that they will surprise on the upside in the last half of 2015. Their drilling activities in the Permian are front end loaded with production increases slanted towards the last half of the year. They are also continuing to lower costs and increase well productivity. Time will tell.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Greek Shares Nosedive As Market Reopens [View article]
    Uber is the future regardless of the taxi industry liking it or not. When places like New york City accept it (like they have) , then world class means learning to get along with Uber. Sure cities will put some rules in place like limiting the crazy fares that can be charged when its real busy but overall, Uber is here to stay.
